We stayed in the radio-free area over the long weekend and the noise level wasn't an issue. The campground is far away from Hwy 60 that we didn't hear any traffic. The privacy was also fine, as we weren't on the main path so pedestrian or car traffic were quite low. Our next door neighbour was at least 15m from our site, and others were even farther away.
From our site, it's a 10-min walk (part of it include a walk on a well-maintained easy walking trail through the woods) to the shower area, which has 7 stalls & 3 toilets for the entire campground. It's ok if the weather isn't too hot. And I guess many people choose to drive there anyways. The flush toilet with 2 stalls for each sex is only 1-min walk from our campsite, and there is no light. The lake is 2-min walk from our site. And the large beach is a 15-min walk. You can buy firewood at the campground office at the gate.
Unlike other car camping campgrounds that we have stayed in Algonquin before, this one is the most secluded. On both nights, we heard animals wandering around very close to our site, and we have followed instructions of bear safety by putting all the scented items in the car.
Algonquin is a large park, so you'll have to drive everywhere.
